Cleveland State University (BBA)
I have always loved learning and, as a result, am eager to impart knowledge to others. Education, especially in today's world, is more vital than ever; being able to speak and write the English language correctly opens doors both socially and professionally, but English is one of the most difficult languages to master, even for the native speaker. The learning process is, of course, easier on a one-to-one basis than in the typical classroom.
As a nurse I spent a great deal of my time teaching patients/clients to ensure a good outcome when released from the hospital and had extensive Home Care experience. Besides hospital nursing and home health I operated as a Case Manager for medical insurance which also entails extensive teaching.
I was a substitute teacher at the American School in Medellin, Colombia and conducted a 6-week state-sponsored course in Medical Billing in Cleveland, Ohio.
I was what might be called a "late bloomer": I was 38 years old when I graduated from Cleveland State University with my Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration. Indeed, I bloomed, making the Dean's List many times. I found that any coursework requiring the submission of written documents to be my forte - all of my papers received high grades. My parents were instrumental in my mastery of the English language and attendant grammar, and it has stood me in good stead.
I love the language and have always excelled in vocabulary, grammar and writing. I have performed several editing jobs and it is rare for me to read a book and not find at least one error within.
Learning can be fun and exciting. Let's put our heads together and get it done! I have always loved learning and, as a result, am eager to impart knowledge to others.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
As a nurse for many years I have had a lot of experience with coding (CPT, ICD-9-CM), and gave several inservices to home health nurses on the importance of coding correctly. (All insurance reimbursement is based on codes submitted).
I was also a partner in a practice in which physician office billing and code use was analyzed and amended in order to optimize insurance reimbursement.
In addition, I spent several months analyzing hospital medical records to ensure that accurate and complete medical charges were being generated.
